The season of parties continues, this time not only with a birthday party but a pre-Halloween bash at Owen’s day care. It dawned on us that this would actually be our last pre-Halloween bash, so we tried to make the most of it.
Owen chose his costume pretty quickly, and I have to admit he wore it well.
Max’s costume was a do-it-yourself project for he and I, and it involved plenty of box cutting and tape and several cans of spray adhesive.
It was a familiar party, with many of the same activities we’ve enjoyed in years past. First we sat them down so they could eat some dinner before we got started.

As a bonus, I got some footage of some fantastic dancing by both boys.
After all that excitement, we had to get up bright and early to get Owen to his weekly t-ball game.
He had another good game that, once again, I couldn’t photograph due to my duties assisting in the wrangling of a gaggle of kids who don’t know where they left their gloves.
Right after the game, we had to get back in the car and head straight to Sherman for our weekly birthday party. This time we’d be celebrating for Pappaw.
We pretty much just spent the afternoon goofing off around the house. The boys made good use of their time with their cousins.
We even got them outside for a little while after we shut down the electronics.
After that, we drove home and settled in for another week of insanity. At least we’re getting good use out of our costumes. If you want to check out the rest of the photos, click here. Otherwise, we’ll be back next time with tales from Halloween proper.
